Ferry

| 11 July 2023 | Tourist information

Behind central station you’ll find ferries that connects the North of Amsterdam to the city. For bikes, scooters and pedestrians it’s the only way to get from North to the rest of the city. Therefore they are FREE to use. The only rules: walk with bikes and scooters on the hand while boarding and stepping off, […]

Het Scheepvaartmuseum

| 11 July 2023 | Tourist information

Say again. Yes, difficult word. It’s Dutch for ‘Maritime Museum’. I wasn’t really sure where to place this one: Buildings or Others. I think the boat on the side made me choose for buildings. What a beautiful combo. The square building rises from the water, and this EPIC historical VOC ship is next to it. […]

Amsterdam Central Station

| 11 July 2023 | Tourist information

My personal favourite. Almost impossible to get this building in one picture due to its width. Designed by architects Cuypers and Van Gendt it was build from 1881 to 1889. The residents of Amsterdam initially disagreed strongly with the construction because it would take away the unobstructed view of the water completely. Nowadays it’s the […]

Sir Hummus

| 11 July 2023 | Tourist information

Here you can enjoy a very tasty lunch. Lovely homemade hummus served with bread and vegetables. Vegetarians have a wide choice here. You can see their menu at their website. The seats are cozy and when you take the first bite, you will imagine yourself being in Israël. They have a really nice special (green) […]

Kong Kha

| 11 July 2023 | Tourist information

A very small restaurant owned by a Dutch man and his Thai wife. And, hell, this woman (and all of her Thai employees) can cook. I’m a big fan of this small place. The taste of Thailand. All fresh products used. If you like Thai food you do not do well if you don’t go […]

Loetje

| 11 July 2023 | Tourist information

They have multiple locations but show the same trick everywhere. Known for their famous ‘Biefstuk Bali’ which is a tenderloin served in a spicy gravy from another planet. In fact, the dish is quite simple but very tasty. When you think back of Amsterdam after a year you’ll still remember the tast of this gravy. […]

Cafe de Klos

| 11 July 2023 | Tourist information

A small eatery known for their outstanding grilled meat and above all, their spareribs. By far the best spareribs I ever had. However, it is not possible to make a reservation and they have a crappy website. Just walk in, let them write your name on the list, take place in the cafe across the street, […]

Dam Square

| 8 September 2018 | Hotspots

It feels a bit unnecessary but I have to mention ‘De Dam’ (Dam Square). This is Amsterdam’s epicenter. Take a look at our beautiful buildings over here. Done? After that, visit one of the hotspots here. I’ll mention the headliners with a small description and a link: * Wax statues of famous Dutchmen but also […]

Johan Cruijff Arena

| 8 September 2018 | Hotspots

In the first place home stadium of (my and our) AJAX! Named after the Dutch football legend. In second place is a stadium where many great artists have performed. You can book a stadium tour to have a closer look. By bike it’s quite a ride (however, not impossible, 30min), with a scooter it’s easier to do. Outside the […]

A’DAM Tower

| 8 September 2018 | Hotspots

Former headquarter of Royal Dutch Shell, the multinational oil company till 2009. Therefore most inhabitants still call it ‘Shell Tower’. But from 2014 till 2016 it is changed to a few new hotspots in Amsterdam with a collection of restaurants, cafes, hotels, and offices but above all (literally): an observation deck on the top floor […]
